Tell us about your music.
Our city teams will review your application and will be in touch if they like what they hear.
Share your music with the best audience in the world...
If your application is successful, you will hear from the local team in a few weeks. Due to the number of applications we receive, and depending on the city, this process may take longer. If you don’t hear from us, your application has been unsuccessful this time, but please resubmit when you have new material!
We work hard to curate each lineup. All the music is listened to by our diverse and knowledgeable team of reviewers, ensuring that there is no bias. This helps us find the best new music possible!
Yes, in the majority of cities. Sofar offers two forms of payment - either a video or a flat fee, variable by city. You local artist liaison will discuss these options with you prior to your performance.
Our shows are stripped-back. While this does not necessarily mean “unplugged”, a setup should consider that you’re likely to be performing in someone’s living room. Where possible, we would recommend having unamplified vocals, acoustic instruments, and a minimal backline. If you have any questions, discuss with your city team’s artist liaison.
Don’t worry, we’ve got that covered :)
Yes, we have no problem with you announcing that you’re playing. Just make sure you keep the details to a minimum, as secrecy is part of the Sofar experience!
